Knitted wire mesh is an conformable material offering great functionality in a variety of applications. Generally knitted in a circular pattern creating a tube, its woven loop construction gives it strength and resiliency while allowing it to be flexible and to conform to almost any size, shape or density. Because it can be made from a thin metal wire, its physical characteristics can be adapted to meet a variety of requirements.
Uses For Knitted Wire Mesh
Knitted wire mesh is commonly used in the automotive industry in products such as Air & Liquid filters, Exhaust seals and Shock & Vibration dampening but it can also be used in a variety of industrial and mechanical applications where there is a need for a gasket or seal which will be subjected to harsh conditions such as heat or excessive oil/grease.
